Sometimes all you need in life is good food, the company of some incredible friends and delicious drinks.
Last Thursday, I got to visit the new Turtle Bay, with Nicole. We got hugged within moments of entering , and skipped the rum punch to grab some delicious mocktails. Nicole is teetotal, and I’m not a big drinker (a choice I make partially from being a light weight, and also because I’d rather spend that five or ten pound on a new pair of earrings or book any day of the week).
We found a wall of fairy lights, took the obligatory selfies and boomerangs before going for a wander round the restaurant.
We found Jemma and Corinna, and Adam and Alice found us. The rest of the evening consisted of far too many drinks (the mojihto was incredible, and definetly alcoholic), sampling everything that flew by, trying to spot Milly and being blown away by how cute the toilets were.
There were almost 800 people in the venue, and when the live music started Alice and I hovered back and stole quarters of pineapples studded with prawns whilst everyone else rushed to get a better view.
This time last year the most interesting thing I could be doing in the same venue would be watching someone get annoyed at the self service kiosk in the post office.
Thank you Turtle Bay for a very fun evening. Now…. To make a dinner reservation for my birthday next week…
Turtle Bay launched its 230 seat restaurant Sunday 22nd October. Slightly exciting fact: this is the furthest south restaurant they have in the UK at present.
